|Title||Swimmers walking near Green Lake, Seattle, 1953 |
|Caption||Green Lake, a freshwater lake in north central Seattle, is a popular spot for boating, fishing and swimming. In 1903, the Olmstead Brothers included Green Lake in a plan of interconnected greenspaces across the city. However, the area's dense settlement left little room for a park. Over the next 15 years, 100 acreas of dry land were added by dredging and filling in the lake. |
In this photo, a young couple in their bathing suits walk toward one of two swimming beaches at the park.
